Synopsis: Homer Hickam is the #1 New York Times best-selling author whose life inspired the critically acclaimed film October Sky. In The Coalwood Way he returns to his childhood home of Coalwood, West Virginia for an inspiring memoir about growing up in a town thats slowly fading away. Homer and his close buddies, who call themselves the Rocket Boys, are high school seniors in 1959. Their rocket building experiments amaze the locals, thanks to top-quality moonshine for fuel, liberated materials, and Homers self-taught understanding of higher math. But no matter how brilliant their experiments are, they can do little to help preserve Coalwoods way of life. With the coal mine on its last legs, prospects for the town are unpredictable at best. For anyone whos ever dreamed of greatness or wondered what an uncertain future might bring, this book will seem warmly familiar. Frank Mullers affectionate narration captures both the spirit of ambition and the spectre of gloomy prospects.
